Hello everyone! First off, I've been a fan of ME for some time and I'm really psyched about a lot of the new features in version 2.0. Unfortunately, I seem to be having some problems with the loading up the ID Tags in my .WMA files. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if there is some other issue. Here's what happens:
I load up ME 2.0 and I add support for .WMA files in the supported formats box. I point ME to my media directory which is setup like this:
Then, when using ME, I can manually browse through the directory structure to play a song at will without any problems. However, if I try to browse by Artist or Genre, only a very few songs show up in the list. It is inconsistent and only a small fraction of the total .wma collection in my media folder. Also, when I select a specific song to play, in almost every case the artist field is blanked out.
When I open the the ME .mdb file, I can see that the artist information did not load into the database properly. On the other hand, if I open up the files in Media Player or in an external Tag Editor, everything shows up (album, artist, title, etc.) I've even tried to synchronized ID3V1 to ID3V2 tags and as I attempted to make sure that the files have all the correct tag information.
I tried to get this to work on a W2K machine and also on an XP machine, in both cases I had the same results. Both machines have all of Microsoft's latest patches and are running Media Player 9.0. Also, all of my media was originally ripped using Media Player 9.0 with Variable Bit Rate at the maximum quality setting.
I really want to get ME 2.0 to work with my music collection - if I can get it to the point where I am happy with it, then I will begin to construct my Car PC.
Thanks in advance!
